Got the car back from getting the AC fixed. The AU condenser I had was apparently an 'el cheapo' one, and it was overmachined where the pressure fitting attaches to it, thus leaking at the o ring. Replaced it with a higher quality one, plus welded up a pinhole leak and so far so good. Just in time for the cooler weather.

Today I changed the spark plugs, then installed the tech edge data logger and wideband o2. Took half the day, then when I went to test it my laptop decided to do a 3 hour update. Finally got it all working and made sure everything worked, which it did. Over the next couple of days I will do some data logging and see where she is at.

I still think it's pretty cool that you can view so many parameters in real time on a vintage car, efi for the win!

Good update. Shake down always finds a few items here and there. Being a bit of a nerd I to like seeing logs and the full instrumentation of the engine and related parameters.


I will someday think of something clever to say.

Nassi, do the gauges in the post above move for you? Mine are stuck in the same position. I think I bumped the screen and the needles in these dials have jammed. Real time my arse. One last thing, why is this guy asking a Cortina to tune his Mustang?

Some blokes on here are weird. Boof has gone all forestry (logs and all) and that Hybrid, one track mind or what? All he seems to like discussing is 'muff sensors' and whether she has a 'wide bum sensor outputting a square waving' What is all this about? I sit here some nights cringing at what I may read next.

All the best and please don't forget to use a stamp on the next letter you send. I am sick of paying for the postage. 'Cash on delivery' was never intended for mailed letters
Cheers

Very sorry Jacko, I must have messed up the direct debit for the postage stamps. I will go back to using slate and Cobb and Co. Do you still have that stable available for the horses?

No Jacko, those gauges are not moving.... but I think that is because someone took that shot with a still camera. I have heard that there are moving pictures available these days but I just do not have the technology to produce or watch one.

As for the crudities of certain other forum members... well I just have no response.

cheers Jacko

Do any of you data logging gurus use winlog?
I have some data logs I wouldn't mind getting someone to look at.

The logging tool I prefer is my trusty sthil 066 magnum and while admittedly over 20 years old is sthil up to the task of shredding logs to keep the child bride warm through winter, which has been known to run from February till November....

So I'll try and upload tonights quick log.
Over the last couple days I have been sorting out some issues, as the original tune on the chip was rubbish. It was very lean on wot ie 16+, and the motor was missing around 4000rpm on wot. I noticed on the logs that my rpm was actually spiking quite high on each wot run, once to 7500rpm. Obviously there was a drama with the tach signal, and I was wondering if the ecu was reading the spike and briefly rev limiting the motor, hence the missing.
Anyway I had a look at my wiring under the engine bay first of all. As I had relocated the TFI to the fender, the relocation wires that go to the dizzy were running very close to the alternator ie touching the back of it. The ECU gets its tach from this, so I relocated the wiring slightly.
I adjusted my maf transfer to make it richer at wot, and went for another burn. Good news is the tach noise is gone, and now there is no missing anywhere(watch those alternators fellas). The car felt really strong also.

Looking at the log, I'm going to bring the maf transfer over 3.5 volts back down a bit to lean it a bit, and between 1.9 and 2.6 on the maf voltage I will richen it up a bit.

It won't let me upload the file here, so I just used an online host. You need winlogview v1.02 to view it if you are interested.

User1 volts is MAF Voltage 0-5v (you might need to change the view configuration to 2 decimal places otherwise it just shows whole figures which are useless)
User2 volts is TPS Voltage .7-4.8v(my pedal fully depressed is about 4.4-4.5v)

Well after a bit of tuning the car has been running very well. A bit of a high idle but that will be a work in progress.
Anyway.......while the car is fun to drive........I'm already used to the power Yawn

As the motor is a fresh rebuild I'm not going to pull it out to stroke it or anything. I want to get my monies worth from my build first.
So I'm basically looking at a forced induction route. The motor is about 9.5 compression so should respond well to FI.
The problem is the only supercharger I can fit due to engine bay constraints with my front running system is a kenne bell twin screw supercharger. And the only problem with that is they have stopped making them for the windsors, so you can only buy them second hand, and they are pretty rare as people hold onto them.

Which leaves me with turbocharging. Again, it won't fit in my engine bay with the serpentine system I have. However, using my hipo manifolds, I actually have a fair bit of space in next to the bellhousing and the frame rail/floor. I reckon you could fit two smaller turbochargers there. The only plumbing thing I'd need to work out is where to route the turbo>intake pipes, as they would need to come to the front first, through a small intercooler and then to the intake.

I would keep the current hipo manifolds and start of the exhaust, which would then be modified to fit to the exhaust flange of the turbo. The rear of the turbo would then connect to the existing exhaust. The air inlet of the turbo would just be a small filter that would be shielded for water ingress. I would use the oil pressure sender to tap in the oil supply, and then use an oil accumulator to dump it back from the turbos into a valve cover.

I may sound crazy but what do you think? I already know the turbo's I want, and have 42lb injectors/larger fuel pump and a blow through maf sitting in my ebay cart. I just need to find someone who will give a go at plumbing the thing.

Apart from the cost of the turbo's/injectors/maf/intercooler which should be around $2500-$3000, the only cost will be the plumbing as I can do the tuning myself. Doesn't seem like too bad of a cost vs power ration. I'd only be looking at about 8psi from the turbos I am looking at(garret gt2860rs .64ar).
